“The handsome and well-appointed new Rialto Theater was formally opened last night to capacity audiences and with many turned away for lack of room.
Last night and today nothing but high praise was heard for the theater, its splendid arrangement and appointments and its opening attraction. Especially were the audiences pleased with the ventilating system which provides continuous fresh air, and the comfortable and commodious seats.
Messrs. Percy and Moran, the owners and managers of the theater, were the recipients of many warm congratulations.
A much-appreciated feature of both shows last night was the music by the symphonic orchestral organ, which was played by a skilled professional.
Rex Beach’s “The Barrier”, the opening attraction, will be given today and Saturday with matinees at 2 p.m. and evening shows at 7 and 9 p.m.“ —Medford Mail Tribune, August 31, 1917, page 2.
The Rialto Theater was still operating in 1950.
